Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 325ºF.
  • Place chicken, garlic and lemons in roasting pan.
  • Whisk dressing, wine and salt until blended; pour over chicken.
  • Bake 1-1/2 hours or until chicken is done (170ºF), increasing oven temperature to 400ºF after 1 hour. Discard garlic cloves and lemon wedges. Or, reserve garlic for another use. (See tip.)

How to Use the Roasted Garlic

Squeeze roasted garlic from the baked cloves into small airtight container. Refrigerate up to 3 days before serving with crusty or toasted bread slices.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with your favourite roasted vegetables. Just roast the vegetables in a separate pan (along with the meat) until tender and browned, stirring occasionally.


We've used skin-on chicken pieces as we found the flavour and moisture of the baked chicken much better than if prepared with skinless chicken pieces. If you remove the skin from the chicken after it is cooked, you will save 70 calories and 7g of total fat per serving.

    This was my second time trying this recipe - easy and super yummy, DO NOT throw out the garlic...mmmm..... I used 1/2 lemonjuice, 1/2 vinegar instead of the wine and it was still good. Kids ate it up.
